Milwaukee Brewers and Shaun Marcum Avoid Arbitration

The Milwaukee Brewers announced this afternoon that they and right handed pitcher Shaun Marcum have effectively avoided arbitration. It is a one year deal, but the money terms have not yet been announced.

Marcum had been looking for $8.7 and the Brewers offered $6.7 in a case that would have headed for arbitration if they had not come to an agreement. Marcum is set to become a free agent after this season in a strong starting pitcher class.

The Brewers now only have one arbitration eligible player left, and that is right handed relief pitcher Jose Veras. Marcum was acquired by the Brewers from the Toronto Blue Jays before last season, when they surrendered their top prospect in Brett Lawrie. The Brewers have been talking about a possible extension with Marcum and fellow right handed starter Zach Greinke.

The 30-year-old Marcum tossed 200 innings for the first time in his career and fantastic success with the Brewers until the postseason.
